In our theory sessions, we'll revisit Patanjali's Ashtanga Yoga —the eightfold path— which lays the cornerstone for embracing a yogic lifestyle. While the practice of asanas is important for cultivating physical strength and flexibility, its ultimate purpose is to ready our bodies for comfortable, extended periods of meditation.

Additionally, to the bandhas, that help to lift and retain prana within the body to increase stability Mudras are great allies to control prana. They increase hand dexterity, strength and harmonize the elements within.
